Hello,

I clicked on your link, but I'm not for certain what to type!

Hello,

Didn't see any energy signatures ...

Hello,

I tried all the conversations with the Lurg and all four planets and their moons.
I did not run into any Shofixiti (or anything at all, for that matter)>

What am I doing wrong?

Hello,

Are there people out there ready and willing to play SuperMelee over the internet?
I don't know how to do it, but it can't be that difficult to do.

Hello,

I found the aliens but not (apparently) the crash site?

Hello,

A bona fide sequel to SC2 would be awesome.  I like P6014 but it does not have as much game to play (different
aliens, stars, puzzles, etc.) as SC2.  I eagerly await a finished version, as I understand this is a demo version.

It's too bad there aren't more Rainbow Worlds, that's an easy way to buy a lot of info and fuel from the Melnorme.


Thanks for the heads up on finding the missing Shofixti (or whatever it is I'm supposed to find).

Hello,

I tried SuperMelee pitting the ZPF Stinger against the Kohr-Ah Rath Marauder
but couldn't figure out how to defeat the Kohr-Ah.  I tried as a human and
as a cyborg.

Someone said I can try using YouTube to discover how to defeat the Kohr-Ah
with the Stinger.  Can you tell me where to go/what to type to get YouTube to
show me how to do it?

In cyborg mode, the Stinger used the pea shooter and not the 'tongue" which
inflicts a lot more damage.  If that's the way to do it, it would take a while to
whittle away the Kohr-Ah's strength.

I remember in Star Control 2, the Spathi used a similar weapon against the
Kzer-Za Ur-Quan, so maybe that's what you meant after all?

Hello,

I understood the second part about the idea that there's already a game named Star Control 3.
I don't know what you mean by "it's a fan sequel".  Can you specify?  Thanks.

I went to Zeta Sextantis and found a rainbow world, but the Melnorme wouldn't buy it for credits,
saying they already knew about it.  Does that apply to all the rainbow worlds you can find in Star Control 2?
Are there new ones out there?  If so, where are they?

I don't mind the fact that it would be a bit of a "spoiler".

Speaking of spoilers, I've looked about the "crash site" and the three Shofixti circles and found absolutely
nothing.  Can someone tell me where I can find aliens to interact with and the crash site?

Again, I don't care about it being a spoiler, I already spent a long time trying to figure it out on my own.

Thanks!

BYE.

Hello:

The AI code that pilots the Kohr-Ah ships is very wasteful of the combat batteries if you can create the right circumstances. Smiley

I think I know how to make the computer controller my alien fighters/AI.

What's this business about the "right circumstances"?  Were you being intentionally
mysterious, that this is something I should figure out for myself (purpose being it would be
more fun if I figure it out myself?)?

Hello:

Try Yehat.  Ok.

What is AI?  Yehat and especially the ZFP are a lot cheaper than Chmmrs
and now that I think of it, they (Chmmrs) don't last very long.

I don't know your reference to an AI battery because I don't know what AI refers to.

Artificial intelligence?  I know in Melee mode, you can play against the alien or you
can have the computer fight for you.  Is this what you're talking about?

Also:  Is this a smaller "demo" version compared to SC2?  Or are both games about the
same size in scope?

Thanks oldlaptop!

Hello:

Thank you.  It looks like what I need to do is collect a lot of RUs
and build some Chmmr ships to combat what could be a lot of confrontations
with the new Kohr-Ah Rath ships.

There isn't much space on the ships for cargo so I need to go to
planets with valuable RUs, so I'd be looking for hot stars.

It's too bad I can't get Rus from the Melnorme, only gas.

Using F6 seems a bit buggy maybe you know that already.
The slash key in the star map seems to work a little better.
If I try one that doesn't work, I find the star I'm looking for
is near the one the program provided me.

It looks to me that SC3 is on a smaller scale:
less star systems, less aliens and less content of the game in general
The fact it's been referred to as a demo version seems to confirm that
suspicion.

I think I misused the "Spoiler" alert.  The word "spoiler" appears
in brackets twice.  It occurred to me that maybe I should have written
the spoliing information between the two brackets.

Too late now, unless you know how I can modify information I've already
posted.

Thanks again for answering!

Hello:

I was pleased with Star Control II: The Ur-Quan Masters,
and I've been playing Star Control 3: Project 6014 demo


Thanks,

Hello,

Before I faced the Sa-Matra, I saw the Pkunk disappear and thought they were destroyed.  Then (seeing they joined together) I thought that after they disappeared I could recruit some before facing the Sa-Matra.  I now know that the Pkunk kinda just do their thing until the confrontation.

I beat the game, though accidentally.  I changed my confrontation to computer controlled, I thought I had switched it on and then off again.  Apparently I just turned it on.

I guess I'll have to wait another ten years to forget how to play the game.  I printed up the map and hung it on my wall.  I like it on my wall, but then I'll never forget how to play, which would make playing it again not as fun.  I'd like to see a sequel, maybe a Star Control 4.

Thanks!

BYE.
